What would improve my hobby expereince.

A picture of a wedding - a lot of people's expereice of commitment.

I was pondering my dodgy feelings of ambivalence and general 'meh' towards 40k and gaming in general the other day. I came to the conclusion that what was lacking was commitment. On my part.

If I put more in, I'll get more out. Simples, as the merekats would cheerily chirp. I'm sure that Jervis has delivered many a homily whoes subject, direct or alegorical, has been commitment. Quite a few people in the blogosphere have made commitments in the form of lists of things to build/paint this year. Which is kool.

But looking at things which require my commitment this year (the girl in the white dress, my job, the dogs, my own looming health crisises and the general decripid state of some of my nearest and dearest) there's only a limited amount of stuff I can realistically manage.

So this year I will play three games.

That's the same as this year. Doesn't seem unreasonable. Any finished wee men or vehicles (ie finished by me) will be a bonus.


  1. Sub out "Dog" for "cat" and I can empathise with everything on that list.

    I managed about fifteen games last year, which was very good for me.

    I do manage more paitning though. I seem to have to choose however between painting or playing my xbox.. I cant "dip into" one or t'other, I have to be fully absorbed....

  2. Exactly. Anyway, your place at the giant table of doom will kept open. I will avoid the bank holiday weekend this time and try to round up some likely sorts... Keep non BH May weekends free if you can.

    1. Three games actually strikes me as a comparatively huge number. I'm not sure whether I managed one or two this year. Either way, I salute your commitment!

  3. Best.

    Lovely pic, too.

    I'm working on getting the Golden Ticket of Potential Weekend Leave to Travel, if that helps...

    Oh, and the first installment's on its way in the post, mate. Hope it suffices (and gets there intact. I forgot to write 'Fragile' on it, so that'll probably help!!).
